One way to get the best of British fare is with Acorn TV. The streaming service features both new and classic British shows as well as exclusive fare not available elsewhere.
Last August Acorn TV, not PBS, premiered the final three episodes of the long-running series “Agatha Christie’s Poirot.”
The streaming service is now offering the U.S. Premiere of the new WWI nurses’ drama “Anzac Girls” plus full runs of ongoing shows like “Foyle’s War,” Vera,” “Doc Martin,” Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” and “Jack Irish” with Guy Pearce.
Acorn TV also lets viewers see classic content like “Brideshead Revisited,” “Poldark” and Helen Mirren’s “Prime Suspect.”
DID YOU KNOW: Helen Mirren credits the “Prime Suspect” series for having a positive impact on her career. She adds that the bulk of the best writing these days is dedicated to TV, not film, productions.
